Is there such a thing as yogurt with vegetables?
Or would that be just dip?
I was eating a Chobani pineapple yesterday and as I was stirring it up, I realized that I've never seen, or even heard of, a similar product where instead of fruit, you'd stir up salsa or ratatouille or butternut squash.
I think if it was made as a dip, it would be perfectly normal, but would you eat it from a cup like fruited yogurt?
I kinda want to make some of my own just to see if it's edible, even.
If you're talking about a prepared/packaged item then I don't know of any yogurt with vegetable products. Though in Israel there are brands of cottage cheese that come prepared with olives in them.
However, as a "thing" the quickest that comes to mind are the various yogurt and cucumber condiments. Typically it's used as a condiment to other dishes, but I don't see why it couldn't be eaten as it's own dish.
Yup, I definitely mean a pre-packaged product. I did forget about tzatziki and similar, which I'm pretty sure I would just eat with a spoon as it is crazy delicious.
It just seems weird though, that yogurt with fruit seems to be a normal thing, eaten with a spoon for lunch, but yogurt with vegetables is a dip or a side dish or a condiment.
I'm going to saute up some zucchini and red peppers and give it a go.
I eat yogurt as a side dish to Indian and middle eastern food all the time. Plain and almost always Greek. I will also add salt and strain for a sort of labneh knockoff.
Id consider the Greek Tsatziki sauce a yogurt with vegetables...Its made with "plain" yogurt,diced cucumbers,onion and garlic with a dash of white pepper and squeeze of fresh lemon...Look it up and make some and serve it with grilled meat or just dip some toasted pita triangles in it...its fabulous...
